Hammonds has promoted six lawyers to the partnership in its latest promotion round, the firm announced today (24 April).

The appointments see the firm’s London and Manchester offices gaining two partners each, while Brussels and Birmingham will gain one partner apiece from 1 May. Four of the six new partners were trainees with Hammonds.

The promotion round represents a significant drop on last year, when Hammonds made up 19 new partners.

Hammonds managing partner Peter Crossley said: “Hammonds is keen to recognise talent internally and it is gratifying to see that the investment we have made in our training and mentoring programmes for lawyers is paying off, with four of this year’s new partners beginning their careers at the firm.”

He added: “Our new partners will play a key role in Hammonds’ future development and the ongoing success of our clients, and I am delighted to welcome them to the partnership on behalf of the whole firm.”

The promotions come after Hammonds earlier this year announced plans to cut 20 partners from its fixed share and equity ranks – representing a cut of around 10% across its UK operations in London, Birmingham, Manchester and Leeds.

Earlier this week Nabarro announced its promotion round, with the addition of three new partners, while Ashurst made up 10 and Berwin Leighton Paisner made up seven – including five in real estate.
